What's the purpose of bsp_start_copy_sections?

I was looking at the common ARM routines and noticed
bsp_start_copy_sections appears to copy several sections from their
LMAs to their VMAs. If we were to have a BSP for a board that stores,
say, the .text section in ROM, bsp_start_copy_sections seems to be
copying it to RAM. Is this correct? If so, what would be the purpose
of doing that?

Thanks a lot!
